Sesquicentennial: Our Band Heritage

Volume 19
Allentown Band
Ronald Demkee, conductor
AMP 24024

I cannot think of a better tribute to the 150th anniversary of Sousa’s birth than this superlative recording by the Allentown Band. This is a band rich in history and was well received by the March King. Ronald Demkee has chosen a program featuring many compositions that will be unfamiliar to the casual listener but are most deserving of an audience. Sesquicentennial is much more than your average Sousa march collection; this is a fascinating arrary of various work that show a side of Sousa few have known. I highly recommend this magnificent recording. Reviewer: Ira Novoselsky
